2 mello – progress lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
my cursed brain makes me lose face, i need sp-ce
the negative thoughts can often have me outpaced
touch base with the small victories please
remind me that i’m driving and these are my keys
make sure your daily standards are reasonable please
don’t throw yourself against it, chip away with ease
meditate on your choices and make yourself understood
and never take advice from anybody eating good
they only wanna keep you down, keep your nose in it
spitting sweet nothings with privilege, they glow in it
wanna help you flower in the game i rose in it
lucky if the plan of one day has got goals in it
lucky if the plans of one week get finished
call me slow but i still feel pretty gifted
ecstatic getting out of bed at all, yeah
our notion of progress is so involved
your haters will always be the same and rude
and don’t quit your job because some edm dude
said so, that it’s the only way you’re gonna know
it’s helping you eat, not keeping you from your goals

[chorus]
you want to ball, it’s only natural
you’re doing too much, but what’s actual
your mind reels how do you get that deal
trying to be like the people who ain’t even real
say i want to ball, it’s only natural
i’m doing too much, but what’s actual
my mind reels how do i get that deal
wanna be like the people who i know ain’t real

[verse 2]
if your sk!lls slightly increase that’s progress
if you brush your t–th at least that’s progress
approach an argument with tact that’s progress
you can say mello’s got your back that’s progress
i need a progress evaluation
from all my people in all nations
who fascinate me with imagination
you’re so creative you deserve congratulation
and relaxation to preserve your situation
when i lose patience and start pacing
my brain burns time, breaks down equations
for why i’m not amazing, erasing my confidence
replace it with nonsense oh thanks that’s just the opposite
if this sounds like a common concept
then i guess we partners in how we break down our own progress
i want you to take two deep breaths
then run over the steps of how you got here
all of those years and the challenges they held
all problems solved by n0body but yourself
lending help to your friends and fam, god d-mn
you’re making just as much progress as you can

[chorus]
you want to ball, it’s only natural
you’re doing too much, but what’s actual
your mind reels how do you get that deal
trying to be like the people who ain’t even real
say, i want to ball, it’s only natural
i’m doing too much, but what’s actual
my mind reels how do i get that deal
wanna be like the people who i know ain’t real

[outro]
and f-ck all the people verified on twitter saying you have to quit your job and make ten beats a day or you ain’t sh-t
and f-ck the people who work you too hard at your job and say it’s because you’re p-ssionate and they can’t keep you away from your desk
and f-ck the people at your family reunion or barbershop or whatever who don’t think you’re a musician because you don’t play a f-cking instrument
that was never the definition you shortsighted f-cks
peace
